It sure is possible to get it back, after all, it's version control. I
think you can probably just do a svn cp -r<revision before deletion>
svn://host/repos/branches/branch svn://host/repos/branches/branch.

Since this is pretty easy, I think deleting branches that are not used
anymore makes a lot of since. Keeps things clean.
